Overall a good experience. Unfortunately, different servers came to our table to take our orders multiple times. It felt a bit disorganized like nobody knew what was going on, especially after we were lectured by one of the servers to order all at once. Beyond that our food and drinks were good. Duck was a little dry, but accompaniments helped. Great ambiance.

Kinetic setting of loud and louder, embodying the spirit of Midtown. Business dinners, catch-up with friends, or a group night out, it’s all here for great service, great courses, great energy, and a great memory. Love the ambience and decor, upscale and sophisticated while not feeling imposing nor intimidating. One of our favorites. Five stars.

We had good service, a little slow on the appetizers, but other than that it was very good. The food was great, and the atmosphere was lovely. Sitting up stairs is great! Much quieter. Easier to talk with your friends and family. Definitely will go back again!

I was hosting two out of town guests for a late lunch at Fig and Olive. Our server was pushy, rushed and downright annoying. If you want patrons out of your restaurant by 2:30 or 3:00 don’t offer a 2:15 lunch reservation. He was hovering over our table before we had a minute to read the menu and insisted that the kitchen was “turning over” so it was essentially last call for food orders. I was embarrassed that I selected this for my guests. Not a good time even though the food was very well prepared. Disappointing overall because of the service.

There was a bug on our bread and it crawled into the bread when we tried to remove it! We called our server over and she simply took away the one piece of bread instead of the tray - she didn't even offer to replace the bread!! Not only did she not handle the situation correctly, but she was unkempt looking. We did not enjoy our dining experience.

I haven't written a review for Open Table for over a couple of years now, but whenever I get to Fig & Olive, I'm always compelled to. I've been going to the restaurant every year now for six years now, and I always have a great experience.

The crostinis were great as always (beef, salmon, shrimp, pea, burrata, and prosciutto) and the chateaubriand for two was perfect. My friend suggested medium rare, which I'm usually not a fan of, but Fig & Olive delivered, indeed. With a side of shallots and asparagus, my friend and I were both incredibly satisfied. And, of course, the side breads with three olive oils (regular, citrus, and peppered) were complimentary to the whole meal. (We had it brought to our table three times.)

Now, the dinner was in celebration of my friend's upcoming birthday (9/10), and I left them a note asking if they could put a candle on the dessert when they bring it out. After they took our entree and just before we ordered our dessert, the waiter brought out their bruleed cheesecake with a candle. The timing was perfect. Most restaurants fail to read the note, but Fig & Olive *always* reads it (I almost always come here for a celebration, and when I do, they never fail in this important part.) My friend, who usually doesn't eat dessert, so this part is usually just ceremonial for him, actually ate the dessert. And so we decided to order one more dessert of our own -- the pot de creme. Both desserts were a perfect end to our two and a half hour birthday meal.

The waiter was very attentive, the staff was courteous, and the ambiance was sweet -- all adding to the wholesome experience.

I highly recommend anyone reading this review to come here for dinner, especially for a special occasion. The experience is worth the price. I look forward to my next meal there.

We got married on Saturday and our cousins having dinner with us mentioned it to the waiter....Brandon. He was over the top bringing us a desert with a candle. Food was amazing as usual. Our cousins were still with us because they live on the coast of FL and could not get home. They loved the experience and can’t wait to come back!

Had an early dinner before a show while on a recent visit to NYC. We started with some of the signature crostini for the group - the goat cheese and caramelized onions, the manchego and fig, and prosciutto were the winners for us. Also ordered a shrimp cocktail, but it was not memorable. For entrees, we ordered the shrimp pasta dish (fantastic), the sea bass (tasty) and the mushroom and truffle risotto (amazing - although I’m not a huge fan of truffles). We were pretty stuffed, but my husband ordered the apple tart at the recommendation of our waiter. It was okay - we probably would order again. If you like cocktails, the peach sangria was refreshing and tasty!

The service was great as usual from start to finish. We were greeted very nicely by the hostess who showed us to the steps where we were greeted by another very nice hostess who seated us in the upstairs space. The dining room was spotless and the conversation was not to loud. Our waiter came over right away and spoke to us about the specials and took our drinks order. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious as always. The bathrooms are spotless which is a big thing with me. The whole experience top to bottom was great!

The Fig and Olive house salad and crostini appetizers are GREAT. Main course dishes a little disappointing. The bouilliabase looks better than it tastes and the chicken taurine was good but not great. However you can certainly make a meal out of the first two items + desert.

A special mother- daughter dinner before college move in. Service was perfect. Grapefruit sangria was an awesome summer sip. We shared 3 delicious crostini, the rigatoni, and chocolate dessert. Lovely Sunday evening.

Empfehlenswerte mediterrane Küche in netter Atmosphäre, ein wenig zu lauter und zu kalt temperierter Speiseraum. Sehr gute Weinauswahl, wenn auch nicht gerade preiswert. Sehr aufmerksames, freundliches Personal.

it was my birthday dinner. The hostess was aware and send us upstairs. Nobody acknowledged the birthday. The service was terrible. We had to try to get the attention of the server every single time. We asked for more water- they forgot- we asked for ice -they forgot. The food took forever. Nobody asked us how the food tasted. It’s wasn’t good. the brokkoli tastes like nothing and the rest was way too salty. My wine glass was standing around empty for a long time. Nobody asked if we wanted to have another wine. None of the server even smiled or was friendly! i‘ve been to the fog and olive in LA and also here in New york a few years back and it was great, which is why i wanted to celberate my birthday here. But this ruined our night. Then, at the end we asked for the bill and others who celebrated their birthday received a birthday cake from the restaurant and i didn’t ! The payment took soooo long aswell for even someone to come with the bill after we requested it and then get back with change. At the end i told the server everything and he wasn’t even aware it’s a birthday and we just wanted to get out of there! He asked if there is someone he could bring us to make up for it but we just wanted to leave. We felt like we are a burden to the servers! Like if we ordered something they felt annoyed! After my complaint he could have taken maybe a glass of wine if the bill or at least something! Well, this was the worst restaurant experience ever and this on my birthday! I would definitely not recommend it to anyone!

I have been here two times with my husband. One time for last year’s restaurant week and another time for my birthday, two days ago. The food has been consistently good and the service as well. This is one of my favorite Mediterranean restaurants. It is on the pricey side so I definitely won’t be able to go all of the time, but I wish I could.

I ordered the Mediterranean style bouillabaisse and my husband ordered the New York Strip. My dish was so flavorful and delicious. Thinking about it makes my mouth water. It was the perfect size too. My husband’s steak was a very large portion. It also came with the MOST delicious truffle potatoes and salad. I hate rare steak and I even liked my husband’s steak.

We also got a half carafe of Pino Noir. It paired perfectly with our meal. For dessert, I got the cafe gourmand option. For $8, it came with coffee, two praline cookies, and a petit dessert of my choice. I chose the pot de cream. It was the perfect size and was very tasty.

We will be back again. If you want a classy atmosphere paired with an excellent meal and great service come here!
